“In order to see birds it is necessary to become a part of the silence.”
A Pair of Puffins, an acrylic painting (8×10) was done on canvas paper using mainly Golden and Liquitex brands. This piece was painted as a possible candidate for a women’s/children’s benefit auction.
Puffins have the most sweet / cute personalities of all bird species – actually pretty comical to watch. In the U.S. they are found mainly along the coast of Northern Maine. On the internet there are live cam’s that have been placed on Sea Island, Maine that let you watch in prime time. I found several exceptional photographs on pmp that I used as a reference to paint these little guys. Another different subject for me to paint, but one that I thoroughly enjoyed working on.
